The day is finally here: Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao will meet tonight in Las Vegas, Nevada in what should be the biggest prize-fight of the decade. It is surely the most expensive fight in recent memory as the pay-per-view broadcast will cost you around $100 for high-definition!
Due to the hefty price tag, most bars will not be airing the pay-per-view. Bars have to pay a fee in order to air the fights and it looks like it’s upwards $5,000!
If you are looking to order the pay-per-view in America, you should call up your local cable or satellite provider as soon as possible to make sure you don’t run into any troubles tonight. You don’t want to be that house that has the technical difficulties!
